Former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard tonight delivered the inaugural Mackworth Lecture at the Institute of Directors and visited the accompanying exhibition of inspiring women by the Lots Road Group of portrait artists.

After delivering the lecture, named in honour of the first woman to occupy the honorary role of IoD President, Lady Margaret Mackworth, in which she spoke about women leadership, she joined the 200 guests in visiting the show which marks the 25th anniversary of International Women’s Forum UK, an organisation of eminent female leaders.

Ms Gillard’s visit is part of the Australia& New Zealand Festival of Literature and Arts.
